My name is German Roverso but I go by Germ (it makes sense I swear). I am a seasoned concept artist and graphic artist from San Francisco but am currently living in New Orleans and have been here since 2016. I am a very motivated artist and love to work in different mediums, software, and styles from digital to traditional. I’ve worked for many video game companies from mobile to console/PC and have done freelance work for a variety of companies including Red Bull and HTC. As far as my art, my main goal has always been the same, keep learning and get better.
